The Guadalupe Dance Company (GDC), founded in 1991, is the professional dance ensemble of the Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center, where it regularly presents the regional dances of Mexico and the Flamenco rhythms of Spain. Committed to maintaining its rich cultural traditions and artistic excellence, the GDC commissions international choreographers for the creation of new works. The GDC is available for public performances, school lecture-demonstrations, and group workshops. Performances can include live music by Mariachi Azteca de America, the resident mariachi of the Guadalupe, as well as various flamenco musicians. The GDC offers three production variations: Celebrando Tradiciones features traditional folklorico dances of the many colorful and vibrant regions of Mexico with dancers deeply immersed in the art form; Alma Flamenco is a soulful journey to the dance and music of Spain featuring sophisticated rhythms and choreography; Rio Bravo is a unique and original dance production offered exclusively by GDC: five dance suites explore the cultural exchanges between south Texas and Mexico from pre-Columbian times to the present day. Suites include Texas-based indigenous pieces, Mexican folklorico dance, European-influenced dances, and modern-day Tejano and cumbia dance and music. Rio Bravo is a perfect program for Hispanic Heritage Month or Texas history presentations. Photo by Edward Benavides.
